Can’t sleep through the night? Try these remedies
The busier we get, the less we sleep. Whether it’s stress, poor lifestyle habits, or being overworked, we often find ourselves tossing and turning more than we ever sleep. It’s time to change that. Here are some tricks and remedies to sleep better at night.
Turn it off. Your television, your computer, your smart phone, they all emit a blue light that dramatically decreases your melatonin levels. If you fall asleep with television on or like to read emails before going to sleep, you won’t sleep as well or as long as you would if those devices were away from your bed. Make your nighttime ritual technology free to help build your natural melatonin levels – a hormone that is intimately involved in regulating the sleeping and waking cycles.
Keep it on a schedule. If you’re one of those people that likes to go to bed “whenever you feel like it,” you’ll find it’s more difficult to fall asleep and to stay asleep. Strive to go to sleep at the same time, every night. Additionally, try to keep those weekend mornings you decide to sleep in to a minimum. Your body’s schedule is important to sleep better.
Keep your naps short. After 30 minutes, it’s no longer a “nap.” For your body, you’re asleep. It’s important to keep naps between 20-30 minutes. It needs to be just enough time to recharge your batteries, but that’s it!
Enhance your sleeping environment The best way for you to sleep better is to create the right environment to do so. Darken the room, turn off all lights, turn off the television and shift the lights of any bright alarm clocks. The dark room will help increase the production of melatonin levels.
